What makes Mexico a perfect getaway for Finnish Citizens? 

If you like spending time on the beaches or exploring the tropical shores, Mexico is going to be an amazing adventure for you.

Although the Rivera’s long sand beaches may feel crowded, their scenic beauty is worth the trouble. 
Tacos al pastor, Chiles en nogada, tamales, and Chilaquiles here are a far cry from the regular ones that you might have ever tried. Don’t miss these ultra-popular munchies if you are a food enthusiast.   

For a trip to this beautiful country, all Finnish travelers need to do is acquire a Mexico Tourist Card. This can be applied online with ease. Just know that citizens of Finland do not require a visa to travel to Mexico. They just need to register for their Tourist Card and apply for it at least four weeks earlier than their date of departure. 
It is to be noted that the same procedure is to be followed by the tourists planning to travel to Mexico by air or road. Your Tourist Card will be mailed to you on your registered email IDs of which you can print a hard copy of to keep handy during your travel. 
Don’t forget the fact that the Mexico Tourist Card allows you only to enjoy activities related to tourism and business visits. Your business visits should be limited to meetings with colleagues, clients, etc. You are prohibited from engaging in any type of job or paid activities during your stay as a tourist.
